I think it's a good idea to buy a magazine (a non-branded one that's not trying to sell you their own brand of food) and have a read of what they consider healthy eating. Be critical though - don't just take what they say for granted, even if they are an "expert".

I think the simplest way to do it is to a) either avoid snacks or eat several smaller meals per day, b) avoid excess grease and excessively fatty foods, like chips or pastry, c) eat lots of fruit and veggies, d) don't eat heaps of carbohydrates like bread and pasta and cakes.

There's lots of good info around here though, you've come to a good place! :)
